The cause of the arbitrary code execution bug in webodex is the library adodb written by John Lim. Webodex uses an older version of this library as the webodex is essentially "mothballed". A new version of adodb is available that plugs this bug and i will be updating webodex late this evening.
The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.
The CERT/CC has no additional comments at this time.
